18. Waiver

The fact that BLA fails to do, or delays in doing, something BLA is entitled to do under this document, does not amount to a waiver of any obligation of, or breach of obligation by, you. A waiver by BLA is only effective if it is in writing. A written waiver by BLA is only effective in relation to the particular obligation or breach in respect of which it is given. It is not to be taken as an implied waiver of any other obligation or breach; or as an implied waiver of that obligation or breach in relation to any other occasion.

19. Time of receipt of e-mails

An e-mail is to be treated as having been received at the time it entered the information system of the addressee in an openable and readable form. Receipt may be proved by an electronic or paper record of that event.

20. User Content Submitted to BLA

BLA invites the general public to join a membership area and from time to time provide content in the form of still photographs, video, stories and other types of user-generated content (“Content”) for publishing to our websites and other electronic media.
BLA’s editors and moderators at their discretion may edit or remove your Content. BLA cannot guarantee your Content will be published on the site. Only BLA’s Productions staff determine whether your Content will be published.

Any Content you submit to BLA is submitted on the basis that BLA may use all intellectual property rights in your Content throughout the world, in perpetuity, without restriction and without any payment to you, including publication of that material in hard copy publications or in electronic media, and using your Content in advertising and promotional material for BLA (whether or not BLA receives payment for this).

You also unconditionally waive all moral rights (as defined in the applicable Australian Copyright Act 1968 as amended from time to time) in your Content and consent to anything which BLA (or any person permitted to do so by BLA) may do in relation to your Content which would otherwise be in breach of your moral rights. This includes that BLA may use your Content without attributing you as the source of your Content.

You acknowledge that your Content is accurate and reflects actual people and events and you did not digitally alter images or footage in any way to create your Content or impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity.

You also warrant that any Content submitted to BLA is not defamatory of any third parties.

On providing your Content to BLA for publication in any media, you indemnify BLA and its officers, employees and agents against any damage or loss suffered by any of those indemnified arising, in whole or in part, as a result of the publication by BLA, or a person permitted by BLA, of your Content; or a breach by you of these terms and conditions.
